A gorgeous day spent with the humorous and knowledgable Bill who guided our lovely group through the local food and wine of the Yarra Valley. Bill has an effortless and comfortable manner that worked to accommodate all our groups requests and questions. We meet the local wine makers, dined at a local winery, chatted to our wonderful travelling companions from around the world, explained the game of cricket and tried to decipher the words of " Waltzing Matilda."
All in all the day was a pleasure from start to finish, in our small group of 12. The tour was professional, our guide informative and caring and the wine and cheese spoke for themselves.
This tour is good introduction to the delights within the Yarra Valley.

First off, kudos to Bill, our tour guide!! He shared a lot of information about the area and wine makers on the way to Yarra Valley wine country. He even made a photo stop so I could capture some kangaroos. 5 wineries with ample samples and a great lunch at Tokar. If you're in the area, this tour is a must if you enjoy wine. My tour group also made the trip fun and interactive.

Small is definitely best! This was the best wine tour we have been on. Bill is informative, knowledgable, flexible and good company. His close relationship with the owners means you get a high level of service and to taste a much wider variety of wine than on any other tour, pace yourself!
The cheese and wine tasting and the lunch on the terrace overlooking rolling hillsides covered in vines are outstanding, just like being in Tuscany. Just do it!
